The Restaurant at Convict Lake
The Restaurant at Convict Lake is one of the Mammoth Lakes area’s most popular fine dining options thanks to its food and incredible setting within the mountains.
Convict Lake is just outside of Mammoth Lakes, but if you don’t mind the short drive then you can make your date night into a full day depending on the season. During the summer and fall you can explore the lake, resort nearby, and the restaurant at night, or you can simply enjoy the fine dining before heading home!
The Mogul stands out since the staff and owners add exceptional hospitality to their fine dining experience.
The great staff and hospitality combine perfectly with the cabin setting and steaks that will make you feel like you’re enjoying the best meal you’ve ever had right at home.
If you’re looking for a date as close to the ski slope as possible, then Petras is the perfect option for you.
Petras is in the Alpenhof Lodge just across from the Village Gondola so that you can spend time in The Village before or after your dinner. On top of the convenient location, Petras has bistro cuisine that pairs perfectly with their extensive wine menu and unique cocktails.
If you want a low-key date night instead of a fine dining experience, then there isn’t anywhere better than Dos Alas.
They have delicious Cuban cuisine as well as tropical and Puerto Rican food, but the view of the surrounding mountains from the Dos Alas restaurant may be the best part of eating there. It’s a great choice for after a day on the mountain or doing anything else outside thanks to the extremely satisfying food.
